Jordan Spieth’s career year in which he has won two major championships and finished T4th and 2nd in the other two has made him seriously rich.
Earning just over $10.4m on the PGA TOUR in 21 events, Spieth is on course to break the all-time money record for one season. In 2004, Vijay Singh won nine times in 29 tournaments and took home an insane $10.91m in earnings that season. Perhaps more impressive was in 2007 when Tiger Woods won seven times and made $10.87m from just 16 events.
While inflation translates Singh and Woods’ earnings to $13.8m and $12.5m in today’s dollars, Spieth still has another six events left on the calendar and should easily break the record.
